The track was super fast and the sun shone all day for one of the Czech Republic’s biggest mountain bike competitions. Here’s Lukas’s report:

On Saturday I felt good and after a slow qualifying run I got to the main final along with Michael, Michal Prokop and Kamil Tatarkovic. I was on line four and shot from the gate to take first place into the first corner. I was leading the whole track into the last corner where Michal Prokop took the inside line and passed me. It was very hard to make a perfect line choice on the corner, but I took the wrong one, finishing second.

Michael got to the main final as well but during a battle for third place in the final corner he crashed and finished fourth.


National championships

Both Lukas and Michael rode in the Czech national championships on Sunday, where Lukas finished fifth following a collision in the first corner, putting an end to a decent result. Meanwhile, after leading the race in his first heat, Michael slipped and crashed over the bars – putting an end to his race.
